Pole-to-pole biogeography of surface and deep marine bacterial communities
The Antarctic and Arctic regions offer a unique opportunity to test factors shaping biogeography of marine microbial communities because these regions are geographically far apart, yet share similarExpand

Galatheoidea are not monophyletic - molecular and morphological phylogeny of the squat lobsters (Decapoda: Anomura) with recognition of a new superfamily.
The monophyletic status of the squat lobster superfamily Galatheoidea has come under increasing doubt by studies using evidence as diverse as larval and adult somatic morphology, spermExpand

Characterisation of bacterial communities associated with toxic and non-toxic dinoflagellates: Alexa
Several dinoflagellate species have been shown to produce potent neurotoxins known as paralytic shellfish toxins. Evidence is also accumulating that marine bacteria associated with dinoflagellatesExpand

Marine bacterial succession as a potential indicator of postmortem submersion interval.
The process of decomposition of bodies in the marine environment is poorly understood and almost nothing is currently known about the microorganisms involved. This study aimed to investigate theExpand

Forensic comparison of soils by bacterial community DNA profiling.
This preliminary investigation has shown that a soil microbial community DNA profile can be obtained from the small sample of soil recovered from the sole of a shoe, and from soil stains on clothing.Expand

Do circum-Antarctic species exist in peracarid Amphipoda? A case study in the genus Epimeria Costa, 1851 (Crustacea, Peracarida, Epimeriidae)
The amphipod genus Epimeria is species rich in the Southern Ocean and at present eight of its 19 species are reported with circum-Antarctic distributions. For the first time, specimens of epimeriidExpand

Effect of ocean acidification on bacterial abundance, activity and diversity in the Ross Sea, Antarctica
Three ocean acidification experiments were conducted on water from the same location in the Ross Sea, Southern Ocean, to ascertain how surface-water mixed populations, including the microbialExpand

Archaeal diversity revealed in Antarctic sea ice
Abstract Archaea, once thought to be only extremophiles, are now known to be abundant in most environments. They can predominate in microbial communities and be significantly involved in many globalExpand

Proteorhodopsin-Bearing Bacteria in Antarctic Sea Ice
ABSTRACT Proteorhodopsins (PRs) are widespread bacterial integral membrane proteins that function as light-driven proton pumps. Antarctic sea ice supports a complex community of autotrophic algae,Expand
